Subject Re: STATE OF AOO: Overall Bugzilla Activity through July 2015
Date Thu, 06 Aug 2015 12:18:17 GMT
Thanks for generating the numbers. Even when it is no surprise that we 
have many unsolved issues, it's always good to know the current values.

In general I agree with Juergen and Roberto, we should focus on the 
newer times of AOO.


To get rid of old issues we need to close all issues that are already in 
a state short before closure [*]:

Duplicate, Irreproducible, Obsolete, Not_an_issue, Verified, Wont_fix

As second step we can close all issues that are in status "Resolved" and 
last updated months/years ago.

Then we have a much lower base of open issues and can filter better 
about age, importantance and severity. Finally it's then easier to 
decide what to do with the remaining open issues.

[*] This makes it necessary to stop all BZ notification mails. Otherwise 
we get flooded by billions of mails and get hit by the Infra team all 
summer long. ;-)
